VAT and the stealth tax
22nd February 2010
... Comments

When VAT was temporarily reduced to 15%, the Chancellor added 2% duty to fuel to offset the reduction in tax collected from motorists. Now that VAT has been increased to 17.5% again this hidden tax has not been removed - hence recent rises in your fuel costs.

We can petition the Prime Minister to fuel duty reduction. Now VAT has increased to 17.5%, the government should deduct the duty which was levied when VAT was reduced to 15%.

Please pass this on - the more the merrier. Let's get this stealth tax removed. Happy motoring Newark!
